Google Has My Dead Grandpa’s Data And He Never Used The Internet

It turns out Google has info connecting me to my grandma (on my dad’s side) who’s alive and well but has never had the internet, and my grandpa (on my mom’s side), who recently passed away in March 2019 and also never had the internet.

… my grandpa and my grandma’s name and address, respectively. This was disturbing for several reasons, the biggest of which being that neither of them had ever logged onto the internet in their lives. Neither even had the internet in their homes their entire lives!

Interesting discussion. Do you know what info Google has about you? Are you OK with Google storing your passwords and credit card info? The linked article includes instructions for finding out what Google has stored and how to change it if you wish.

I do not use the Google password storage, however I do use a password vault. Roboform.
